New Isuzu mu-X Euro 4 with Blue Power Diesel Engine [ADVERTORIAL]

As the country’s number one commercial vehicle brand based TMA-CAMPI reports, Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) has played a significant role in the Philippines. They developed and supported various industries by providing trusted vehicles and world-class diesel engines. Embodying their corporate slogan, “Your Responsible Partner”, they continue to provide a proud legacy of customer service, employee satisfaction, and social responsibility while also contributing to nation building.

More than just “The Nation’s Workhorse”, a term coined because of Isuzu’s immense contribution to the country’s strong and vibrant logistics network, Isuzu’s reputation as the “King of Diesel” extends even to their family-oriented offerings.

Already a best-seller, accounting for more than 30 percent of their sales, the mu-X is a comfortable, capable, and practical 7-seater family SUV. However, Isuzu has brought in more improvements in 2018 to make the mu-X the best choice in this segment.

The most significant of which is the new 3.0-liter Blue Power engine. Marking Isuzu Philippines’s shift to clean diesel technology, this new engine is now Euro 4 compliant while also boasting an increased power (177 horsepower) and torque (380 Nm) output.

The 4JJ1-TCX engine in the mu-X delivers four key traits: maximum engine output, low emissions, best fuel economy, and excellent durability. Joined to the engine is a brand-new 6-speed automatic, which offer significant improvement in fuel economy compared to before. Definitely, this combination makes the mu-X smoother and quieter, offering a more efficient drive.

Aside from a new powertrain, Isuzu upgraded the user-friendly interior of the mu-X with soft-touch contact points, a high-resolution touchscreen infotainment screen, and blue ambient lighting on the door panels. And given all the handheld devices people carry nowadays, the mu-X provides three USB ports and three 12-volt power outlets. It’s a genuine 7-seater with best-in-class headroom and ample legroom across three rows.

On the exterior, the mu-X receives a plethora of changes including a revised front fascia with new headlights, bumpers, and grille. As Isuzu takes inspiration from nature, specifically the eagle, the Bi-LED Projector Headlamp and integrated LED daytime running lamp are reminiscent of a bald eagle. The rear bumper along with a LED Positioning lamp signature are made to resemble an eagle’s wings. With the 18-inch alloy wheels, the overall look is a stronger, sportier mu-X.

Designed for Filipino families, the Isuzu mu-X offers the most complete package in its class. Whether it’s usable power, comfort, or efficiency, it has you covered for the long haul. The 2018 Isuzu mu-X is definitely proof of Isuzu’s commitment to being “Your Responsible Partner” for life.


  1. Typical Isuzu strategy, always trying to get away with as much as they can. Continuing to capitalize on our 3rd world mentality.
    This blue engine will probably be their standard till Euro 6 becomes mandatory.
    Sportivos/crosswinds will still be on sale come 2018 until last units roll out for 2017 production.
    Bili na nga 3rd world peeps! Let's enjoy the sulfur and NoX together.

    1. As much as I'd like to think Isuzu is only joking, it really is true. Sasagarin ng Isuzu yung products nila kahit luma and unsafe.

  2. WHAT Isuzu!! Ano sabi nyo??
    The 2018 Isuzu mu-X is definitely proof of Isuzu’s commitment to being “Your Responsible Partner” for life.
    Just look at the Crosswind, you continue to flood the market with 3rd world standard. Year 2001 pa yan body nyan and your still pushing for its sale next year.

  3. No manual transmission?

    1. Who want manual transmission in heavy traffic?

  4. Bat di nila retrofit mga crosswind ng compliant engines?

  5. Why not use the dmax platform and build a body like a crosswind?

  6. Malinis na Malinis na talaga ang Isuzu dahil Euro 4 na sila. :) Good Job Isuzu!

  7. Okay na sana, but the price increase of 250K is too much for 4x2 model
